School Discipline Reform Certificate
Students may obtain the online certificate by successfully completing four (4) two-credit hour courses:
Semester 1 (Fall)
- Legal Issues in School Discipline
- System Consultation in School Discipline Reform
Semester 2 (Spring)
- Restorative Justice
- School Discipline Reform: Linking Law, Policy and Practice
Students are required to attend a two-day intensive on-campus weekend seminar on Restorative Justice at Loyola University Chicago’s Water Tower Campus. The weekend retreat offers students the opportunity to network with other professionals and engage in lively discussions and exercises related to the core principles and practices of restorative justice.
To support students’ learning, Loyola offers an online orientation that incorporates presentations on adolescent brain development, trauma, and implicit bias. In addition, students may invite colleagues to participate in periodic online presentations on discipline topics at no charge.
